I also want to note that after my husband ate these meals he also would mention, it's not bad but it's missing something. That's the same comment I got after every meal I made from this book. If you are comfortable with spices then I'm sure you'll have no problem spicing these up.
I am not a %100 Raw Foodist, but I am trying to incorperate more raw foods into my diet and this book is so easy to use because the recipes are organized largely by mealtime so I can find something quick and easy to put together--NOW! All the recipes are simple and require very few appliances. Also, everything I've tried tastes amazing, even recipes I wasn't too sure about! I never thought I'd like a Papaya Carpaccio because I hadn't really liked papaya in the past, but the dish was SO yummy that I devoured the salad almost entirely myself! There's a recipe for a chocolate mousse made with cocoa powder, avocado, dates, and honey that is amazingly satisfying! And, the cashew-nut-sour cream cheese is simply cravable. These recipes and others take less time to put together than anything cooked. It's also good to know that I can eat something rich or sweet and feel good that all of them are made out of fruit, vegetables, and occasionally a tablespoon or so of a natural sweetener, like honey or agave syrup.
The only thing that could be improved is the binding of the book, which looks like it may have the tendancy to un-do since it's a thick paperback.
Other than that minor detail--buy this book and welcome to Raw Food Love!
In addition to the great recipes, this book is pretty - nice layout, photos, etc., and honestly I am a sucker for pretty books. But again, I am enamored with the ease of these recipes. I think it's almost validation for how I eat and most usually approach the raw thing, meaning - in the summer and early fall and even spring it's much easier and feels more natural to eat a lot of raw. But I live in the Midwest, and in the winter, it is very counterintuitive for me to hunt for pineapple and mango to make a smoothie. I want root vegetables - sometimes cooked - and miso soup. And I won't apologize for that. (There are no cooked recipes in here and none for miso soup, I was just making a point.) I do love the raw recipes that use these root veggies (parsnip, celery root, sweet potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes for example)and I am totally all over the fruit porridges. I'm making my own versions with seasonal fruit and chia seeds, and although many may say it's just a smoothie with less liquid, OK - but I didn't think of it - and I love it. Especially the idea to add celery. My non-raw husband also loved the taco fixings, which we had last night.
I think those new to raw will love these recipes. And those who truly need or want to put something together quickly. A lot of books say "quick" but there are often hidden steps or recipes within recipes that make this misleading. In this book, NONE of the recipes require dehydration, so save for the recommended nut soaking in some recipes, these are very easy to do. Over this Memorial Weekend, the book has been my go-to for some needed cleansing and "body resetting." I think this is a great book for beginners, as well as for those of us who are a little burned out on the more involved recipes many raw food books contain. Right now, this is the way I want to eat, and I'm so glad I found this at a local bookstore so I could see it for myself. I look forward to more raw food books by these two women! (Hope you're working on one!)
